The Travelling Pedestal

The Travelling Pedestal scheme is intended to promote inter-visiting between Chapters within the Royal Arch Province of Yorkshire West Riding.

The Most Excellent Grand Superintendent Stewart G. Carley is most grateful to
E. Comp. Thomas Lindsay Ward PPGSwdB for making and donating to the Province, the Travelling Pedestal and carrying case.

The first presentation of the Travelling Pedestal was made by The MEGS Stewart G. Carley at the meeting of Provincial Grand Chapter on Saturday 7th November 2015.

The Travelling Pedestal was presented to the MEZ and members of Knaresborough Priory Chapter No 4171 who are the first “Receiving Chapter”.
E. Comp Frank Taylor, PGStB, Assistant to the Provincial Grand Principals, will co-ordinate and oversee arrangements made for the Presentation of the Pedestal and the administration of the Scheme in general.
